PMX (Parachute Madam X) Fly Tying Video Instructions

The PMX (Parachute Madam X) is a great hopper and stonefly dry fly imitation.  The PMX is the Parachute version of the traditional Madam X.  The PMX is easier to see, floats higher and has a more life like look picky trout.  The PMX can be tied in many different colors, with Yellow, Red, Olive and Orange being the most popular.  The PMX is a fairly difficult dry fly to tie, and takes some time to master.  The many materials tend to often get in the way and can be frustrating to deal with.  Using a strip of lead wire to wrap around and tame these materials helps.
